June Townhall: Coding with Kids (Me Books x Owlnext Edu)

On the 10th of June, we were privileged to have Sato from Owlnext Edu at Me Books Nooks in Sunway Iskandar, Johor for a special Father's Day coding workshop.

Taken from their website, Owlnext Edu believes that the teaching of coding is something that is often overlooked in the current educational curriculum in Malaysia.


However, there is an increasing demand for programmers or those who have skills in coding in many companies in the digital age. Without the exposure of coding, kids might not be competitive enough for the workforce in the near future.


Photo: Now more than ever, programming is an important skill especially for digital natives.

During this Townhall, Sato conducted a workshop that taught kids (and parents!) the basics of coding and, in particular, coding dinosaurs.

This Townhall was based on the book Dad and the Dinosaur by Gennifer Choldenko (find this book online at our Me Books Store). The book is about a timid little boy called Nicholas who wishes to be as heroic and brave as the most fearless man alive: his father. But young Nicholas has many fears of his own, and the only thing that gives him courage is a pocket-sized dinosaur that he carries around with him... until his good-luck-charm goes missing, that is. We even had a fun storytelling session with this book right after the workshop ended.

We at Me Books and Owlnext Edu believe in empowering children, as every child has their inner insecurities and troubles that can be rectified with the right guidance and encouragement. We hold deep gratitude towards what Sato and his team has contributed in the name of education and we hope for the best in any of their future endeavours.
